What does 2.4 A mean?

The higher power (2.4amps or 2.4A, 12watts or 12W) chargers are often required by modern phones and tablets in order to charge the device. Lesser powered USB chargers (1A or 5W) have been the standard for many years but they are only sufficient for charging smaller mobile devices.
